How to get an Artist Image to show up for a particular album?

Recommended Posts

Hello all.....I'm running the latest stable version of Poweramp on a Samsung Galaxy S10+.  I have a microSD card in the phone with about 4500 FLAC song files on it.  I just set up Poweramp on the phone, but there's one thing that sets off my OCD.  I was able to download all of the Album Art and Artist Images, except for one Artist Image.  I have a U2 album that will not show the Artist Image.  They show up for every other artist.  I know that just one Artist Image missing is damn good, however, any idea how I can get the U2 Artist Image to show up?  I tried a Full Rescan (couldn't find where to remove tags first though) and an uninstall/reinstall of the app.  It still does not show up.  Thanks. :)

If you manually choose the album  art via the 3 dot button on the album art ( or the place where it should be 🙂 ) , what happens then ?

It's not the Album Art that I'm having an issue with.  They all downloaded fine.  It is the Artist Image for one U2 album.

So you only have one U2 album, and in Artist view you see "U2" with 12 or so tracks, but no artwork? I wonder if it's the two-character name that's messing up searching (some search systems require at least three characters to look for a match).

Ok, and if you manually search for the artist image ? Does the search start, does it find something, can you choose, is it then displayed ?

I just put a few U2 tracks onto my phone and got the same problem, so changed the artist name to "U-2" and I could then search for and select artwork, so it does seem to be just that the two-letter name is too short for the search engine.

Thank you very much.  That makes sense.  Question:  How do I change the name to "U-2" in Poweramp?

You can do it in Poweramp's own tag editor (long-press on each song one-by-one, select Info/Tags, and then Edit Tags) or if there are a lot, use an external batch tag editor.

You can also override the 3 character limitation by manually placing your image like this:

/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/selected_artist/U2.jpg

That is true, if you already have an image or can download one manually, that should work.
